DW__What's your name? How old are you and where do you live?
Charlotte, 27, living in London.
DW__When did you started blogging?
In November 2010.
DW__How did you come up with the idea?
I was working in online marketing and affiliate markting for an online retailer and saw so many amazing blogs. One day I realised this was the platform for me to express my creativity and love for styling and fashion. Hence, I started www.thefashionguitar.com Now, around 1,5 year later, it is still growing and I love doing it, every day!
DW__What is fashion for you?
Fashion is a kind of art. I can become really enthusiastic when I see designers' new collections. It inspires me a big deal, and I love to reflect the trends in my wardrobe. Designer, or high-steet like Zara and H&M Trend.
DW__What do you think about the influence of fashion bloggers in the fashion world?
I think they bring the fashion world to the 'regular' girl. I mean, not everyone is in the position to go to fashion shows or buy designers. Fashion bloggers, some of them, can give them a little sneak peek into this world. And moreover, they show you that fashion doesn't have to be expensive. Of course you have a few big bloggers who are almost fully branded, and wear only designers. This seams like a dream, but it is a very unrealistic perspective for the most. So I try at least to show my readers that you can make a perfect look, without spending huge amount of money.
DW__Do you believe that one day they'll replace the fashion magazine or do you think it's just ephemeral?
No, fashion magazines won't get replaced. That's where the bloggers get their inspiration from too.
DW__Your favourite item in your wardrobe?
My leather biker jacket, Isabel Marant Willow sneakers, and my floral trousers.
DW__3 Indispensable items?
Leather biker jacket, ankle boots, skinny- and a flare jeans.
DW__Where do you get your ideas from?
Fashion magazines and website, and other fashion bloggers.
DW__What is your greatest inspiration?
Other fashion bloggers such as Andy from the Style Scrapbook, Caroline from Carolines Mode, and of course many fashion designers. I adore their creativity and passion.
DW__How important is it for you to look your best and why?
I love dressing up and being on-trend, but it can also be very comfy to have a day in my sweatpants!
DW__Who would qualify to be an icon?
I hope so!
DW__What is your favourite colour?
Black, metallics, grey, and currently also some neon colors!
